New york city market report Second half 2013

A MESSAGE FROM OUR MANAGERS: What a year in NYC real estate! The scarcity of inventory created bidding wars at most price points. Slight year over year increases in prices were noted, according to our year-end report, and closings will continue in the new upper-echelon luxury condominiums, where record breaking sales prices were achieved. According to The New York Times, a strong local economy, stock market gains and steady foreign interest helped bolster demand for Manhattan apartments as supply continued to shrink. Seems like everyone wants to live here. Is it your time to grab a slice of the Big Apple? DOWNTOWN Brokerage

Manhattan breakdown condo and co-ops The overall Manhattan absorption rate stands at 3.1 months which is a rate that signifies a “seller’s market�. The historic range of equilibrium for the market area is between 6-9 months. The absorption rate is calculated by taking the total number of currently active listings and dividing by the average number of closed sales over the 6 month period. Nearly all price segments are experiencing a relative shortage of inventory. The top price tiers have rates that are much higher than the 9-month, equilibrium level. However, this level of supply is fairly common in the top tier price bracket. $300k$499k
